@support I have cast a number of Albums to a Google Nest Mini 2, and on each occasion the music/casting will stop. Roon will remember where it left off (see image) but I cannot determine why the casting stopped.

Here is a support file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IQpSGmJmMOEW2vxBMSJ6zHhFkfHVuEii/view?usp=sharing

The last time I was listening to ‘The Flamming Lips’, ‘Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell’ when casting stopped at 2:59 into the song, some 30 mins into the album.

It happened again: at around 11am, 6/8/20 I thought. I have attached a shot of what was planning and a support package too: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sGWroLKlpAQExvBHtraXqVc7-rPsON9R/view?usp=sharing

Hi @Afullmark,

Thanks for reaching out and sending those logs! Let me get the logs over to our technical team for review, once I have their feedback, I’ll reach out once more, thanks!

Thank you very much, Noris.

@noris I played the same album again and casting stopped at a different point in the album this time:

Here is the support package; I’m not sure quite what time GMT the casting stopped, but you have the info from the screen shot, if that helps.

Hi @Afullmark,

We are going to enable some deeper diagnostics tools for your account which will hopefully provide better diagnostics info related to this issue. We have just enabled this diagnostics tool, can I please ask that you:

  1. Exit out of Roon and start it again if currently running
  2. Reproduce this issue once more
  3. Note the exact local time + date + track casting stops at
  4. Exit out of Roon right after the issue occurs
  5. Send us a new manual log set by using these instructions within a few minutes after the issue occurs

Note: This logging mode is very detailed, so please be sure to exit Roon and send the logs folder before starting Roon again (as logs get automatically overwritten by new data).

Once I have the new log set (with the deeper diagnostics), I can ask QA to review. Thanks!

Okay @noris, all done.

The music stopped at 7:19pm GMT; you can see the music I was playing and when it stopped from the shots attached here.

The behaviour I saw was that in the Roon app on iOS and the core, the Google Nest Mini (Kitchen) dropped off the list of those speakers reachable and then pop back up again. Almost within seconds.
